June 07, 2007 82 W, 1 I - + 22 - 13 Six Words To Rule Them All

Given the high literary quality of this week's strip, I'm sure it will come as no surprise that it owes its origins to Ernest Hemingway.

Way back in the day, Hemingway wrote the following story: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." He is said to have called it his best work.

In November, WIRED did a feature where they challenged celebrities to follow in Hemingway's footsteps and write their own six-word stories.

Early this year, David started a thread on his blog for posting six-word stories.

Which led, ultimately, to this six-word Hatbag.

This strip, in turn, made us wonder what it would be like if we had always written Hatbag in this format, so we went back and modified old strips into six-words miracles of brevity.

The first of those strips is here, followed by a series of others, each linking to the originals they're based on.

Please enjoy them, with our compliments.
